Bug Description

Currently when you run diff --using xxx, it creates temporary files representing the trees being diffed, for the external app to read. It also does this for a working tree.

The difftools plugin does not create temporary files for the working tree, but rather passes the path to the working tree. This makes it possible to edit the working tree files in the external diff app.

I would like for this to be ported to the core bzr diff --using implementation.
